TELEGRAPH CODE

PREFACE 



This Code has been specially prepared to meet the requirements 
of the China Inland Mission. Since the year 1S99 a small Code, 
compiled by Mr. T. G. Willett, which was based upon the telegrams 
received at, and despatched from, the Mission Headquarters in 
Shanghai, during a period of more than ten years, has been of much 
service. The development of the work of the Mission, however, 
has called for a more comprehensive Code in order to cllect greater 
eiSciency and economy in telegraphing, and with this in view, Mr. 
J. J. Coulthard, Mr. T. G. Willett and Mr. C. T. Fishe, several years 
ago, carefully collated a considerable amount of useful material, 
embodying the result of further experience. 

But the burden of the work of tlie compilation of this Code has 
fallen upon Mr. F. H. Neale, who, when leaving for furlough in 
1904, volunteered to undertake the laborious task of arranging the 
material prepared, and of so adding to it as to produce a Telegraph 
Code adapted to the needs of the Mission. He has brought together 
a very extensive i-ange of useful words and phrases, and has devoted 
much time and thought to the preparation of special Tables. The 
result of his skilful and painstaking effort merits sincere appreciation 
and gratitude. 

Grateful recognition is also due to Mr. James Stark, who has 
carefully revised and edited the manuscript, and to Mr. and M'rs. A. 
Bland for valuable assistance given in reading the proof and in the 
preparation of the list of the names of Chinese cities and towns. 

It is to be distinctly understood that no one is at liberty to re- 
print or publish any part of this Code.

Preface to the Second Edition 



In consequence of the continued demand for the C. I. jNI. 
Telegraph Code, and in response to the urgent request of several 
of the Missions who have adopted it, a new edition is published. 
As regards the contents, it is a reprint of the first edition, now 
sold out. A few typographical improvements, however, have been 
introduced : the page numbers have been transferred to the foot of 
the pages to prevent confusion, and all table numbers have been 
printed in black-faced type to facilitate reference, whilst the binding 
is in half-leather instead of cloth. 

The valuable assistance of Mr. A. T. L,avington, who has read 
the proofs and bestowed much painstaking effort upon them in order 
to secure accuracy, is gratefully i^ecognized.

INTRODUCTION 



The Code. Explanation as to the manner of using the C. I. M. 
Private Telegraph Code is hardly necessary, the principle upon which 
it has been prepared being self-evident. The leading words, as will 
be observed, are printed in heavy type in alphabetical order, as also 
for the most part, are the words and phrases placed under them. To 
this rule a few exceptions have been made for reasons to which there 
is no need to refer. 

The Table Number is given at the top left hand side of each 
page, or in large type in the case of special Tables, whilst a two- 
figure cipher is placed opposite each word or phrase. In telegraph- 
ing any given message the Table Number must precede the two-figure 
cipher. 

For example : — 

Table Number.s 131/75 and 353/57 represent : " Please send by 
quickest means chloi'oform. Dr. W. Wilson." 

In the list of Chinese cities and towns, which have been arranged 
in alphabetical order under their provinces, places where there are 
telegraph stations are indicated by the letter "T." The orthography 
used i;i this list is, as far as known, that adopted by the Imperial 
Chinese Postal and Telegraph Administrations. 

The G. Y. X. Table. The London Telegraph Conference 
of 1903 having made the important concession of permitting the 
transmission of pronounceable made-up words of not more than icii 
letters as one ivord, the sending of telegraphic Code messages has 
been simplified. 

In order to take the fullest advantage of this concession, the 
annexed G. Y. X. Condensing Table has been specially prepared 
for use with the C.I.M. Private Telegraph Code. By the aid of this 



Table two five-figure Code ciphers can be transmitted as one word. 
For example :— 

To telegraph the following two five-figure Code ciphers — 32264 
(Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Coulthard and children) and 11209 (leaving by 
Butterfield & Swire's Line on the 9th) — the word dijbEyidaTa is 
all that is necessary. The Code word is obtained thus : — 

32264/1 1209 

32=D]3 ^ 
26=BIC I 

4i^Yi ^=Di;ijr;YiDATA 

I2=DA I 
Op^TA J 

Or take as a further example the following ciphers: — 27600 [On 
receipt of this please pay to — (transmission only) G$300] and 13459 
(Scandinavian China Alliance). 
27600/13459 

27=ME ^ 

6o==GO I 

OI=YA ;>^M]iGOVALi;wi 

34=1-15 
59=wi 

Should it be desired to send only one five-figure Code cipher 
the fifth figure should be represented by one of the consonants 
provided for the purpose in the G. Y. X. Table. 

For example : — 

25724 (Telegram received; agree to. your wishes), would be 
represented by hudom, the Code word being obtained thus : — 

2 5=H13 ) 

72=D0 ^=hi;dom 

4=M J 

Or as a further example, take 01958 (Appointment accepted). 
This Code cipher would be represented by yaFut, which is obtained 

thus : — 

OI=YA "j 

95=IfU J- = YAFUT 
8=T J 



It may be sometimes necessary to telegraph Chinese characters, 
and for this purpose the Chinese Telegraph Administration has 



pi-ovided a Code (which may be obtained at any Telegraph Office 
throughout the Empire), in which each character is represented by 
four figures. 

To take advantage of the G. Y. X. Table in transmitting any 
given Chinese characters, the order of the letters should be reversed 
to prevent confusion — that is, the vowel should precede the con- 
sonant. 

For example : — 

The following two four-figure Chinese Code ciphers, 

07i9=Jg| (Chow) 
2625=^1 (Ts'uen) 

should be represented by the word amawEbEii, which is obtained 
thus: — 



I 

26=]iB r 
25=1-11 j 



07^AM 
I9=AW 



=AMAWEBEH 



Five four-figure ciphers from the Chinese Code can, by the use 
of the G. Y. X. Table, be transmitted as two words. 



For example : — 

1198=^4 (Sing) 
6320=^ (Ho) 
o682=ig (Ming) 
6i34=M (Ch'eng) 
2706=;^ (Keh) 

are represented by the words, apuno\EGab uxoyelEmab, which are 
obtained thus: — 

II=AP "1 

98=UN I 
63=ov I 

20^EG I 

06= AB (^ 

82^UX 
6l=0Y 

34=EL 

27=EM 
06=AB 



APUXCJVEGAI:/ U:\OYEI,EMAB 



A four-figure Chinese Code cipher may also be combined with a 
C.I.M. Code five-figure cipher, as one word. 

For example : — 

Take from C.I.il. Code, 30235 (The Chinese characters are — ) 
and from the Chinese Code the following ciphers : 

5663=^ (Lan) 
7893=11 (Lung) 
2890=^ (Ch'iao) 

The words to be telegraphed would be jevbnizov onucekuj, which 
are obtained as follows :— 

30235/5663 7893/2890 

30=JE 1 

23=VI' I 
5=N ^JKVENIZOV 

56^12 
63=ov _ 

78=0N -\ 

2S=S J^O^^UCEIvUJ 

9o=uj J
